Clear the Shelters “Bark Week” powered by Google Meet is showcasing shelter pets with the hopes of virtually connecting available animals with adoptive families across the country.
The "Bark Week" event takes place in Chicago on Aug. 12 at 4 p.m. CDT via YouTube livestream here.
Imagine online speed dating but with animals.
Event host Johnny Bananas will highlight shelter pets that are in need of forever homes from the Chicago Animal Care and Control.
The shelter representative will answer questions about the animal during the livestream.
Clear the Shelters "Bark Week" is taking place nationwide from Aug. 10 to 14 in Huntington (New York), Philadelphia, Chicago, Pasadena and Irving (Texas).
Now in its sixth year, Clear the Shelters, an initiative of NBC Owned Televisions Stations and Telemundo Local Group, has facilitated more than 410,000 shelter pet adoptions across the United States. This year, the "Adopt & Donate" monthlong campaign has gone virtual and has more than 1,000 participating shelters.
